✨✧ USA/European ConnectionCome Into My Heart ... LP
TK, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album in Boris Midney's USA-European Connection – and virtually a one man disco symphony in itself! The whole album comes off as one long extended track – even though the variations are given title differences, yet still have the full feel that comes from Midney's creative approach to the grooves in the studio! Core rhythms pulsate strongly, while piano, keyboards, strings and other instrumental bits each make their appearance – including some conga rhythms that really help warm up the bottom – and occasional chorus vocals to drive the hooks home. Titles include "Come Into My Heart", "Good Loving", "Love's Coming", and "Baby Love" – but as we say, it's really a lot more like one long track! LP, Vinyl record album

Native SonCoast To Coast – Native Son Live In USA (with bonus track) ... CD
JVC (Japan), 1980. New Copy 2CD ... $29.99
Sublime live work from this legendary fusion combo – a group who were to Japanese jazz what the Crusaders were to the US at the end of the 70s! The album features the group recorded live in the US – working in especially soulful territory that features lots of Fender Rhodes and clavinet from Takehiro Honda – plus great horn lines that flow, soar, and sparkle wonderfully with a perfect balance between tightness and soulful expression. This Japanese version features the full double-length album – not issued in the US – with a total of 9 tracks that include "Coke Screw", "Jay Walk", "Super Safari", "Autumn Dreams", "Racing Around", "Wind Jammer", and "Orange Sunrise".

Philadelphia International/Sony (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most successful albums cut by People's Choice during the 70s – and a record that shows them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. Yet despite the easily imagined disco that the title might indicate, the album's actually got some great soul tracks – filled with the heavy Philly soul of earlier days, stretched out a bit more professionally thanks to production help from Gamble & Huff. Frankie Brunson's great on vocals and keyboards, and the band grooves hard and tight on most of the album. Tracks include "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "Mickey D's", "Party Is A Groovy Thing", "Don't Send Me Away", and "I'm Leaving You". CD

VariousSoulsville USA – A Celebration Of Stax (3CD set) ... CD
Stax/Craft, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99 24.99
It's been almost 60 years since the Stax Records label forever changed the face of American soul music – and we can think of no better way to celebrate than by dipping into this well-chosen batch of 60 classic tracks from the label's glory days! The whole Stax groove is here – from the early roots of Memphis soul, to the label's breakout crossover moment in the 60s, to their new sense of pride and power in the post-1968 years – all wrapped up in a super-tight 3CD set, without any filler at all! The set moves in roughly chronological order – and covers both the ballads and the groovers, the funky moments and more sophisticated sounds – on titles that include "Jody's Got Your Girl & Gone" by Johnnie Taylor, "Fool In Love" by The Veltones, "Big Bird" by Eddie Floyd, "Private Number" by Judy Clay & William Bell, "I Got A Sure Thing" by Ollie & The Nightingales, "Hey You Get Off My Mountain" by The Dramatics, "Starting All Over Again" by Mel & Tim, "Hearsay" by Soul Children, "Dedicated To The One I Love" by The Temprees, "After Laughter" by Wendy Rene, "Walking The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "You Don't Miss Your Water" by William Bell, "Tramp" by Otis & Carla, "Walk On By" by Isaac Hayes, "Just Keep On Loving Me" by Johnnie Taylor & Carla Thomas, "What A Man" by Linda Lynell, and "Your Good Thing Is About To End" by Mable John.

This volume of the Chicago-based Steppin Across The USA series goes farther back than previous volumes – to the 60s "dusty steppers" sound that first got the city grooving decades ago! The package includes a number of great singles from the Chess, Atlantic, and Motown catalogs – including many that aren't in print elsewhere! Titles include "Oh My Angle" by Bertha Tillman, "Dedicated To You" by Willie Tee, "Oh Cindy" by The Vibrations, "I'm Over You" by Jan Bradley, "Say You" by The Monitors, "Standing On The Dancefloor" by The Isley Brothers, "Let Love Be True" by The Naturals, "Write To Me" by The Isley Brothers, "I Want You I Need You I Love You" by Hector Rivera & The Latin Renaissance, and "I'll Do The Best I Can" by Jame's Phelps.

✨✧ Muyei PowerSierra Leone In 70s USA (180 gram vinyl with download) ... LP
Soundway (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hip group from Sierra Leone – but one who recorded these tracks in the US during the late 70s – which makes for a very unusual hybrid of sounds! The group's original approach was to update regional sounds from their nation, and avoid some of the more commercial cover versions of Anglo hits on the market – but over the years they played a fair bit on the Canary Islands, and then on the west coast of the US – and seemed to pick up a range of funky influences in the process! The result is a sound that's rooted in Africa, but peppered with lots of skittish rhythms and fast instrumental riffing – a bit like some of the post-colonial work on the London and Paris scenes of the time, but a bit different too. The cuts here were all originally issued in the US on the Makossa label – that hotbed of cross-cultural creativity – and titles include "Bi Loko", "Yamba Sowe", "Wali Bena", "Be Patient", and "Ben Ben Bee".

MPS/PA USA, 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the grooviest albums that Clare Fischer ever recorded – featuring his electric Latin fusion group Salsa Picante, fronted by a two-man/two-woman vocal quartet who give the album kind of a "Brasil 66 meets Singers Unlimited" kind of sound! Fisher is on Fender Rhodes, and the group features Poncho Sanchez on conga, percussion by Alex Acuna, and some great reed work by Gary Foster. Tracks include "Du Du", "Legacy", "Guajira Pa La Jeva", "Funiquado", "Melancolico", and a great version of Fischer's excellent "Morning", one of his best and most-recorded compositions!

The tracks are pretty darn obscure, and although the production's not credited on either side, it's in a perfect style for Jackson's rich warm vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alphonse MouzonBy All Means ... LP
PA USA, 1981. Very Good ... $5.99
A killer bit of soulful fusion – recorded by Mouzon after his harder-jamming 70s years, with an all star group that includes Herbie Hancock, Lee Ritenour, Freddie Hubbard, and Paul Jackson. The tunes groove wonderfully – never too over the top, and always in the smooth soulful mode that was the best part of major label fusion in the late 70s. Mouzon plays a fair bit of keyboards next to Herbie's acoustic and electric piano, and tracks are long, with some really nicely jazzy grooves. Titles include "The Jogger", "Do I Have To", "Space Invadors", and "The Next Time We Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alphonse MouzonSky Is The Limit ... CD
PA USA, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best of Alphonse Mouzon's 80s R&B fusion albums – thanks to an eclectic mix of styles that includes a number of nice electro elements! Al's playing as much keyboards as he is drums on the set, but that's not a bad thing in our book – as the tracks have an electric approach to the grooves that lets the keyboards share strongly in the rhythm chores, and funk things up nicely without getting in the way. Other players include Ronnie Laws, Ernie Watts, Richard Elliott, and Paul Jackson Jr – but from the sound of the set, it's clearly Alphonse that's driving the groove engine on this one! Titles include "Why Don't You Break It", "Do You Wanna Dance", "Making Love With You", "Come & See What I've Got", "The Sky Is The Limit", and "Starting All Over Again". CD

Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... CD
Fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 18.98
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. CD

Stelvio CiprianiRhythmical Movement (with bonus download) ... LP
Sugar/Cinedelic (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Rhythmical movement is our favorite kind of movement – especially when it's done right, which it definitely is in the hands of Italian soundtrack maestro Stelvio Cipriani – who turns in some wonderful grooves for this rare sound library set! The album's got a funky vibe that matches some of Cipriani's best film score material from the late 70s from the keyboard-heavy cuts that he used in both love and comedy scores, to some of the more upbeat disco sounds he'd bring out for other films – although the album's pretty darn upbeat overall, and definitely lives up to the movement-heavy promise of the title! Most tracks are instrumental, with nice funky currents and keyboards – and titles include "What Can I Do", "Brasil Connection", "Living & Loving", "Don't Tamper With My Things", "Burglar Proof", "Percussion Gun", and "Chicago USA". LP, Vinyl record album

Golliwogs (Creedence Clearwater Revival)Fight Fire – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1967 ... CD
Fantasy/Craft, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Fantastic freaky sounds by The Golliwogs – the group who later morphed into Creedence Clearwater Revival – but who already sound pretty great themselves! The style is close to Creedence, but nicely different too – much more garage rock overall, with the vocals of John Fogerty maybe tuned more towards a sound used by The Animals – although his guitar work also has plenty of fuzz! There's a definite influence from R&B, but maybe not as pronounced as in later years – and all the charms of CCR are clearly bubbling right there under the surface. The tracks were all recorded by Fantasy Records in the early days, and for years were considered something of a footnote to their later fame – but taken together here, they're more than strong enough to stand on their own. This new Craft presentation is the best they've ever looked, too – as the package has very detailed notes, and information on all the original recordings – with 23 titles that include "You Came Walking", "Little Tina", "Don't Tell Me No Lies", "Brown Eyed Girl", "Fight Fire", "Walking On The Water", "You Can't Be True", "She Was Mine", "Gonna Hang Around", "Call It Pretending", "Little Girl", and even an "Action USA Spot".

Some tunes have this burning quality that's completely sublime – while others still preserve some of the looser jamming energy that spawned the group – those heady waves of sound that Miller and Scaggs really helped filter down for a whole new generation!

Night Blooming JazzmenNight Blooming Jazzmen ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest records ever cut under the direction of Leonard Feather – a sweetly grooving little set that's filled with tight changes and lots of soulful riffing! Feather wrote and arranged the date, but the real strength here is the players – Mainstream Records hipsters who include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Charles Kynard on organ, Paul Humphrey on drums, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Ernie Watts on sax and flute – plus a bit of vocal work from Kitty Doswell, although the album's predominantly a vocal one. There's almost a soundtrack jazz feel to some of the best cuts here – tunes that are funky, but not in an over-the-top sort of way – with subtleties and sophistication that really keep the album fresh. The set kicks off with "Nam M'Yoho Ren'ge Yo", which has a good groove, and a nice tight break at the beginning – and other tracks include "The Night Blooming Jazmen", "Donte's Inferno", and "Funkville USA".

SuicideSuicide ... LP
Red Star/Superior Viaduct, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken-down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a key bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s – and one that was in a space that was completely their own – and still is, after all the decades since the release of this record! With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. The album has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock records of all time – and titles include the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree".

Sylvie VartanSylvie Vartan En Anglais – Et En Americain ... CD
RCA/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Sylvie Vartan was one of the grooviest singers in France during the 60s – part of that great wave of female talent that also included Francoise Hardy and France Gall – and although her French recordings are very well-remembered and reissued, she also cut a number of more obscure English language tracks at the time! This collection is the first to focus on those gems – work recorded in New York, Nashville, and London – all different spots directed by RCA, where Sylvie picked up new grooves, different production, and some styles that really expanded her sound! Almost all the numbers here still have that swinging 60s French pop approach – mod at times, slinky at others – but the shift to English lyrics makes for a mighty nice change – and opens the singers charms to an even bigger audience than ever. CD features 25 tracks, detailed notes, and even includes a few unissued titles from the time – with tunes that include "Love Has Laid His Hands On Me", "Whirlpool", "Gonna Cry", "Run For The Sun", "USA", "I Heard Somebody Say", "Another Heart", "He Understands Me", "It's Not A Game", and "I Wish You Well".

Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Killer sounds from a legendary label – a famous east coast imprint that was equally great at disco and funk – and who could do an especially great job of fusing both of them together! De-Lite is best known as the initial home of Kool & The Gang, but the label also had an array of fantastic funk acts who were every bit as great – and every bit as well-skilled on funky instrumentation! De-Lite artists always had a way of being razor sharp, but never sounding too slick or smooth – as you'll hear in this excellent collection of cuts that includes "Funky Granny" by Everyday People, "Can You Feel It (part 1)" by Rhythm Makers, "Never Gonna Let You Go" by Made In The USA, "Maybe If I Leave You" by Richmond International, "Far Out" by Crown Heights Affair, "Casanova" by Coffee, "I Believe In Music" by Kay-Gees, "Can You Do It On Skates" by Citi, "Give The Gift Of Music" by Motivation, "Mighty Body" by Leon Bryant, "Never Get Enough Of Your Love" by Street People, "Woe Is Me" by The Dynamics, and "I Wanna Give You Tomorrow" by Benny Troy.

A set that really gets at the full spectrum of the boogaloo groove – not just the Spanish Harlem sounds of the Latin Soul generation – but also the deeper roots of the style from across the USA! "Boogaloo" is a term that most folks use to refer to that New York uptown fusion of Latin rhythms and soulful vocals – and while the NYC styles were key to its fame, the music also burst forth from lots of points west, too – and came together in a flurry of fast rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and hard-driving vocals that made for a completely infectious blend! This package is a fantastic testament to that mad musical moment – and is overflowing with a selection of gems that goes way past the obvious – not the Fania Records catalog that usually shows up on other boogaloo releases, but a huge batch of tracks from small labels and indie singles too. Titles include "Skate Boogaloo & Karate Too" by Lee Harris, "Block Party" by Jimmy Castor, "Boogaloo #3" by Roy Lee Johnson, "Do The Boo-Ga-Loo (part 1)" by Tom & Jerroo, "Playing It Cool" by Hector Rivera, "Ready Steady Go" by Prince & Princess, "Bar Kays Boogaloo" by The Bar-Kays, "What I Feel" by Richie & The PS 54 School Yard, "Have Some Boogaloo" by Timmy Thomas, "Bugalu" by Charlie Palmieri, "Boogaloo (part 1)" by The Bob & Earl Band, "Me & You Doing The Boogaloo" by Lou Courtney, "Boogaloo Zoo" by Shirley Butler, "Bugaloo Party" by Harold & Connie, "Boogaloo Investigator" by The Exotics, "Funky Funky Boogalo" by Jimmy Brown, and "Let's Do The Funky Boogaloo (part 1)" by Barry Jones.

Epic, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most stunning debut albums of the 70s – and a set that burst on the scene with a sound that summed up a generation, but which had never been heard this clearly before! This self-titled Clash album was different from other landmarks of the time – work by the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and others – as the group had a sense of raw power, but also a tunefulness too – a way of pushing their message into territory that others wouldn't have reached – with tunes that were as surprisingly hummable as they were politically correct! There's a bit less Jamaican influence here than in later Clash years, but that quality is still present somewhat – and over the years, this is definitely a set we can return to again and again – with no sense of apology or outdated ideals at all. Nearly every cut's a classic – and titles include "Janie Jones", "Career Opportunities", "Police & Thieves", "Garageland", "Clash City Rockers", "I Fought The Law", "White Riot", "London's Burning", "White Man In Hammersmith Palais", and "I'm So Bored With The USA". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nat Dove & The DevilsPetey Wheatstraw ... LP
Magic Disc/Dolemite, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest blacksploitation soundtracks of the 70s – a rare indie gem from Nat Dove & The Devils! Dove's got a style that's a lot rougher and rootsier than other soundtrack artists of the 70s – an approach that's more based in the modes of the indie funk underground of the time, and less in the more polished studio funk you'd find on bigger film releases. The grit in the grooves is wonderfully welcome here – and it's a quality that really sets this one apart from the pack, and keeps it in heavy rotation over the years! Most of the tracks on here are instrumentals, and a few of the cuts have vocals by Mary Love – and titles include "Joy", "Petey Wheatstraw", "Steve's Den", Junkie Chase", "Zombie March", "Ghetto Street USA", and "Loving You".

Mercury, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Quincy Jones' best for Mercury Records in the 60s – a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Strut (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A whole new side of the talents of Sun Ra – especially if you only know the longer-style jams on some of his albums from the 60s and 70s! From the very start of his career, Ra was every bit as interested in issuing music on 45s as he was on albums – and in fact, at some of the more desperate times, the 7" single turned out to be a very affordable format to try out new ideas – including some great projects with other artists! The array of work presented here is stunning – as the set includes some very up-close and personal moments with Ra on record, plus some tight jazzy tracks from the Arkestra, surprising vocal group material designed to crack the R&B market, and some especially cool projects with other singers too. The package is put together with very detailed notes on all the singles – and while the bulk of this material comes from the key Arkestra years of the late 50s through the early 80s, there's also a few tracks from other dates too – including a handful of songs that were only issued as 45s in later years. Vinyl Part 1 is a 3LP set that focuses on the earliest years – with a total of 35 tracks in all – and titles include "Chicago USA" by The Nu Sounds, "I'm Coming Home" by Billie Hawkins, "Softalk" by Sun Ra, "Demon's Lullaby" by Le Sun Ra, "It's Christmas Time" by The Qualities, "M Uck M Uck (Matt Matt)" by Yochanan, "Bye Bye" by The Cosmic Rays, "October" by Sun Ra, "Adventur In Space" by Sun Ra, "Back In Your Own Backyard" by Hattie Randolph, "The Sun One" by Yochanan, "Dreaming" by The Cosmic Rays, "The Sun Man Speaks" by Yochanan, "Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie" by The Cosmic Rays, "Last Call For Love" by Billie Hawkins, and "Super Blonde" by Sun Ra.

Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Funky Philly soul at its finest! This is the first-ever People's Choice compilation we've seen – all the more impressive for pulling together essential recordings made for the Philadelphia International, Casablanca, TSOP, West End and Phil-LA Of Soul labels – recordings that cover an incredible decade-long run! People's Choice burst out of the gate in the early 70s with a wave of funky, electric piano flavored singles – soon catching the attention of Gamble & Huff, which helped open doors both commercially and creatively in the years that followed. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer batch of tracks from early 70s to early 80s than you'll find here – including standout early singles and album tracks, rarer B-sides and single mixes – when considered all together really showing the group in all its multi-faceted glory! 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Do It Anyway You Wanna", "I Likes To Do It", "Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky", "Nursery Rhymes", "My Feet Won't Move, But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Turn Me Loose", "Grunt", "Love Shop", "Asking For Trouble", "Don't Send Me Away", "A Mellow Mood", "You Ought TO Be Dancing", "If You Gonna Do It (Put Your Mind To It)" (Parts 1 & 2), "Boogie Down USA", "Soft And Tender", "A Great Truth", Tom Moulton mixes of "Opus-De-Funk" & "Do It Any Way You Wanna" and "Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)" and more!

Stanley CowellMusa ... LP
Srata East/Everland (Austria), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... About April 5, 2018 (delayed)
A solo piano set from Strata East mainman Stanley Cowell – but a record that's got enough soul and spirituality to rival a full group recording! Although working alone here, Cowell's touch on the keys is astounding – often flowing and highly rhythmic, with a pulsating sense of energy that makes even the mellower tracks sparkle with soulful imagination. A number of tracks are intimate explorations of themes heard more famously on albums done with Charles Tolliver – but which come alive in a whole new way here in Stanley's solo setting! Most work here is on acoustic piano, but Cowell also picks up the electric keys for the tune "Travelin Man" – done here as an overdubbed "duet", and one of the hippest tunes on the entire record! Other titles include "Abscretions", "Equipoise", "Prayer For Peace", "Departure No 2", "Sweet Song", and "Emil Danenberg". LP, Vinyl record album

Crusaders5 Original Albums (Chain Reaction/Those Southern Knights/Free As The Wind/Images/Street Life) (5CD set) ... CD
ABC/Verve (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 5CD ... $19.99
A document of an incredible shift in style for the Crusaders – and one that helped them soar even higher in the jazz funk stratosphere! By the time of these albums, the group had changed significantly from their youthful days as the Jazz Crusaders – mostly a trio, with Joe Sample on keyboards, Wilton Felder on saxes, and Stix Hooper on drums – but often augmented by some of the best studio help they could find, and working at a level that was still razor-sharp, and incredibly soulful! So many other artists mixed jazz and soul together in the 70s, but a rare few could do it this right – and still hold onto all the bite that the artists had in their earlier days. Production is tight, but never too slick – no 80s smooth jazz modes here – and there's a sense of groove balanced with a sense of soloing that's really wonderful! All five albums are impeccable – to jazz what Steely Dan was to mainstream rock at the time (and we mean that in the best way possible!) – and as you'll hear with some slight inclusion of vocals (most famously by Randy Crawford on Street Life), these guys also found a way to win whole new audiences to jazz from the world of soul too. A great package – with all five albums in little tiny LP-styled covers! CD

Fantastic funky jazz from the Crusaders!

There's a lot of nice electric funky numbers, and more than a few hip hop samples on here!

On this one, the Crusaders definitely crossed from jazz into funk – but who cares, because the album's so darn great! The record's got a tight LA groove, with some excellent electric keyboards, sweet sax solos, and tight drumming throughout. True proof that sometimes a lot of money can be put to good use to improve a band's sound in the studio – and with the tracks to back it up, like "Creole", "Chain Reaction", "Rainbow Visions", "Hallucinate", and "Soul Caravan". This is album is to jazz funk what Steely Dan's Aja was to 70s rock! LP, Vinyl record album

The guitar's a bit more pronounced in the mix on this one – setting up some tightly funky rhythms that almost seem to free up the horns even more for solo work – resulting in a sound that brings together all the best bits of the LA scene into one impeccable album of smooth jazzy funk! Titles includes their classic "Stomp & Buck Dance", plus lots of other nice groovers like "Double Bubble", "Time Bomb", "The Well's Gone Dry", "Whispering Pines", "Lillies Of The Nile", "Greasy Spoon", and "Super Stuff".

One of our favorite albums ever from The Crusaders – a set that really sums up all the tightness they'd forged in the 70s, while still showing a new sense of soul and funk as well – expertly balanced with flawless LA production! The album may well be the group's equivalent of a Steely Dan album – no surprise, given the work they'd done on sessions for that group – and the title cut is the massive extended version of "Street Life", with killer vocals from Randy Crawford – and other titles include "My Lady", "Night Faces", "The Hustler", and "Rodeo Drive".

Apart from the title's terrible pun on the Glenn Campbell hit of the mid 70s, this album's a real treat – a very soulful batch of smooth funky jazz tunes by The Crusaders, who by this point have fully emerged to claim the throne of the pop soul jazz genre they virtually invented. The record's got razor-sharp production, which you'll hear perfectly in the album's jazz stepping hit "Keep That Same Old Feeling", one of the best tunes ever to come from the pen of Wayne Henderson, and a track that he recorded endlessly with other groups. Other tracks include "Feeling Funky", "Spiral", and "Til The Sun Shines". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic bit of funk from Fatback – and one of those records that still makes us scratch our heads, and say "Man, how can they make music this tight?" The sound is impeccable – bass and drums really right on the money, with a focus that's a huge influence on countless acts to come – and this wonderful way of still being loose and fluid, while being impeccably played – hardly the too-uptight sounds you might get from other stiffer funk acts of the second half of the 70s! There's a really organic, collaborative feel to the whole groove – which also comes across in the way the vocals are laid down – almost as if the whole group's stumbling onto the lyrics at once through their musical inspiration – on killer cuts that include "Spank The Baby", "NYCNYUSA", "Cosmic Woman", "Double Dutch", and "Soul Finger".

Sublime early soul jazz from the Jazz Crusaders – a seminal set that really has the group taking off right away! The use of "freedom" in the title is well placed – as the set definitely shows the players stretching out a bit on their solos – hinting at the magic that would move even more forward during their Lighthouse recordings – while still hanging onto the great groove that took them from Texas to the top of the LA scene! Every player's got a key presence here – Wilton Felder on tenor, Wayne Henderson on trombone, Joe Sample on piano, and Stix Hooper on drums – and the set also features some guest rhythm work from Jimmy Bond on bass and Roy Gaines on guitar, both of whom bring a nice pulse to the set.

Liberty/Big Break (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
The Jazz Crusaders at the start of the 70s – taking on a bit of The Beatles and some great grooves of their own – and picking up a fair bit of funk in the process! The album still has the group working in the best modes of their late 60s Liberty years – more jazz than fusion, with the core group honed to a solid "t" – able to slide effortlessly over slinky rhythms with soaring solos – a marvelous combination of music that comes from the efforts of Wayne Henderson on trombone, Wilton Felder on tenor, Stix Hooper on drums, Buster Williams on bass, and Joe Sample on both acoustic and electric piano. Beatles tunes include "Give Peace A Chance" and "Black Bird" – but the rest of the album is original material from the group – really showing them hipping up their vibe with some righteous funky energy of the late 60s. Titles include "Anita's New Dance", "Space Settlement", "All The Lonely Years", "Another Blues", and "I Think It Was A Dream". CD
